Program Description

Event Details

This presentation focuses on clues in the genealogical records to find ancestors that may have been Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, or Queer. Stewart tells stories of many LGBTQ ancestors in the historical context of LGBTQ rights. Clues to ancestors can be found in photographs, census, newspapers, obituaries, cemeteries, military records, marriage records, and LGBTQ Archives around the world. The presentation is both factual and emotional in portraying LGBTQ people in the past centuries. We all have queer folk in our family trees. When we come across someone that tickles our rainbow flag, don’t ignore them or try to explain it away. Investigate and invite them into your family story.
